Year 3 have started learning about the 7 continents in the world. We practiced locating these on our balloon “globes.” To help us do this, we first added the equator around the middle of the balloons to use as a reference point. A few balloons may have popped but the children all had fun learning about the geography of the world in a hands on way.
This week, Year 5 have been using atlases and globes to find out about continents. We were very creative at home and even made cakes to show our developing knowledge.
We were also amazed by this fantastic globe!
Which continents do you know?
This half term, Year 5 have been looking at the topic ‘Extreme Earth’. Over the course of 4 weeks, the children have each designed and created their own volcanoes using a plastic bottle, cardboard and newspaper.
We then created our own volcanic ‘eruptions’ using bicarbonate of soda, white vinegar and some red food colouring.
Have a look at our results in the gallery and how the children created their fantastic volcanoes!
Today children in year 1 had a fantastic time building bridges to enhance their learning about our capital city, London. Take a look at the photos in the gallery page and see what a great time they had.
Thank you to all the adults that took part today. The children learnt so much about structures and the design and making process.
